It is a simple pattern that can be made any number of ways to share your creative style.

The Everyday Dress

This classic A-line raglan sleeve style pullover features an elastic cased neckline. It can be made as a top, tunic or dress with short or 3/4 length sleeves. Make it your own; wear it o the shoulder; style it with a belt, try it in a variety of fabrics. The possibilities are endless. Darts at the bust-line help give this silhouette a more feminine style. The bias detailing around the neck doubles as the elastic casing. Or simply fold the neckline hem to create a casing. Sizes S-3XL. Try it in your favorite fabrics, from quilting cotton, corduroy, knits and more!

Check out our Facebook page and group for more ideas of how to make this style your own. Share your creations in our Facebook group or tag us on social media with #indygojunction and #everydaydress.

This pattern offers 2 finishing options: a bias trimmed neckline, or a self casing. The bias option allows for a contasting band that has a thin finish for either 1/4″ or 3/8″ elastic. The self cased neckline can be used with this thinner elastic, as well as 1/2″ and 3/4″ elastic as well.

For this dress we used a Cotton spandex blend knit from Girl Charlee. We used ¼” elastic on view A. The patch pockets pattern is aligned so that they almost disappear when not in use.

This Everyday Top features a beautiful homespun woven from Textile Creations. The short sleeves make this perfect for summer. We used ¾” elastic to give more weight to the neck, and also this way it can easily be worn off the shoulder.

This thin waled corduroy makes a dress with more body, and with added warmth for cooler days. We paired this dress with a coordinating belt for a more defined silhouette.

Gingham is the perfect project to pair with bias casings using pre-made solid color bias tape. We made the patch pockets stand out by changing them out for a smaller check. This dress uses a 3/8” elastic to fill the whole bias channel.

We hope you will join our group for the FREE pattern and a chance to learn and share with our creative community of Indygo Junction friends!

    This is a very cute dress! I deleted my Facebook account because of all the nonsense going on with it. Any chance you could make the pattern available in another way?
